A lot has happened in the one short year since Extreme MMA Byron Bay brought out a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts fighter and coach from Brazil.  

Daniel ‘Jacaré’ Almeida has nestled in nicely to his life in the Bay with his growing family and his growing legion of local fans.

Adding excellent to awesome is the brand new state-of-the-art facility that Extreme MMA have created in the industrial estate with the coaching team including Daniel, letting you train with the best heavyweight BJJ competitor in Australia.

The entire Extreme family, with Ben Pietzsch and Paul McVeigh at the helm of the Byron Bay Chapter of Extreme MMA, are very proud of Jacaré’s achievements over the last 12 months.

Daniel-Almeida-EJ-9W6A9511As well as coaching the Extreme MMA and Jiu Jitsu team, Daniel has won almost every title on offer in Australia including gold medals in the Heavyweight Division of the Gold Coast Cup; the Heavyweight Division of the Australian Championships Gi and No Gi; the Open Division of the Byron Bay Open; the Heavyweight Division of the Pan Pacific Championships; the Heavyweight Division of the Brisbane BJJ Championships; the Heavyweight Division of the Melbourne Open Gi and No Gi; the Open Division of the Melbourne Open Gi; the Heavyweight Division of the South Pacific Championships as well as being a Gold Medalist in the World Qualifier – Abu Dhabi World Professional Jiu Jitsu Championship.

To top it all off, next month Daniel will travel to Abu Dhabi for an all-expenses-paid berth in the World Championship battle against the best there is on the planet today.

To celebrate their first year and the new premises, Extreme MMA are offering a seven-day free trial.
